“After working with cancer patients for years, I have come to see what a difference the right medical team can make in their lives,” says Irina Vigovskaya, a physician assistant on the radiation oncology team at Cancer Treatment Centers of America ® (CTCA), Chicago. “I want to be as helpful as possible to my patients.”

Originally from Ukraine, Vigovskaya completed a registered nurse program at Kiev Nursing College in 1990. She served as a registered nurse at Kiev Student Hospital for several years before coming to the United States. She then earned a bachelor’s degree in biology at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2004. She went onto complete a master’s degree in medical science at St. Francis University in Loretta, Pennsylvania.

Previously, Vigovskaya served as a physician assistant at a private medical practice in Chicago. Her work included diagnosing and treating patients, prescribing medication, performing follow-up exams and counseling patients on health maintenance. After caring for many cancer patients, she decided to turn her focus to oncology. She joined CTCA® in May 2014.

Vigovskaya is certified as a physician assistant by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

Vigovskaya is dedicated to providing Patient Empowered Care® at CTCA. She says, “I keep my patients informed of their options, and offer guidance and support throughout their cancer journey.”
